The tassels make it awesome.  Grin

Hey --
Here's my take on the "Lenox Square Throw" from Lion Brand (found here: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/90241AD.html).  I made this for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day (well, we don't technically celebrate Valentine's Day anymore because every other one in the past has been an epic fail.. but you get the point!).  He likes textures, so I decided to add four HUGE tassels on the corners of this throw.  Green is his favorite color and he loved the tassels.. so it was a win, for a day that has historically been full of fails.  Smiley

The yarn used was "Vanna's Choice" in "Kelly Green" -- it's soft, durable, green, and (most importantly for a guy like mine..) machine washable!



And here he decided that he would help me out and model it for me.
The photos get increasingly creepy from this point...  Tongue







Here I thought it would be nice to get a picture together with the throw.. but.... what IS he doing?!



OH, tassel down my shirt -- I should have known he'd pull that!  Roll Eyes



I love making him things.. he's always so appreciative.  Cheesy

Enjoy!

A great way not to celebrate Valentine's day Grin Color, texture, pattern, everything on that throw looks nice. Good to hear he appreciates!

Tassels totally add that special touch!! I don't think the pictures are creepy at all!! They are lots of fun and show how much he appreciates it! Cheesy  (The green color is awesome btw)
